This ornate house of worship was constructed in 1882 in Temple Square by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. It’s ornate decoration includes beautiful stained glass, painted murals and decorated woodwork. This Assembly Hall also uses many symbols of the LDS Church such as the beehive.
Before the present Assembly Hall was built, a smaller tabernacle existed on the site that consisted of an adobe building. As the church and its followers were vastly growing in the region, a needed for a larger building was called upon.
The Assembly Hall has been used for over a century as a place of worship and conferences. In 1980, the organ was replaced with the present one that is still used today. This organ features 3,489 pipes.
